I looked into many Norton novels in the past but never got past page five before abandoning the efforts due to boredom. This time I promised myself to finish one of them, if only to determine why others enjoyed her work.
No hopeógot to about page twelve before quitting. She writes as you would expect a librarian to do, with some of the slowest openings in the explored portion of the galaxy.
Technical gimmick type of story but a pretty good one. Kept my interest, at least.
Interesting concept but would work better as novel or novella than short story.
Cute, well-written story about collecting specimens of Venusian wildlife. I was disappointed that the cat didn't end as more of a hero.
